Course Format

To help you squeeze every drop of value out of this course, the curriculum follows the Makerpad method of Build, Learn, Build.​

→ Active learning, not passive watching​
→ Learn from a cohort of peers building alongside you
→ ​Promotes accountability and 2-way feedback​

Every week, you'll unlock a new module of videos and posts covering the topics outlined in the schedule. You'll watch these on your own time (or with others in the community), and then put them into practice following the project prompts.

Then, two times per week, you'll join a live showcase and feedback session breaking down that week's learnings, answering your questions, and workshopping solutions built by the cohort. These live sessions are where the magic happens. They are your opportunity to connect with peers, give and receive feedback, share your learnings and obstacles, and create accountability around your goals.

We also host extra, non-compulsory sessions, including a live demo-build and a Q&A session with founders of membership tools. These sessions will be recorded for on-demand viewing (sometimes life gets in the way!).
